Asked by Jan 02, 2014 at 11:15 AM about the 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Limited 4WD

Question type: General

I'm looking at a 2007 Sport Trac with a V8 that is listed to tow 6800 lbs.  Problem is it has the very small hitch receiver on it, 1" maybe.  Are these interchangeable?  I need it for towing.

So it has the OEM 1 1/4" receiver and you want a 2". They sell adapters but what are you towing? You can purchase a new 2" receiver and add that. Not sure if you would have to remove the old one. I use www.etrailers.com
